Victoria Chapter


The IAF Victoria Chapter was incorporated in the State of Victoria, Australia in 2014.

We chose to call ourselves the Victoria Chapter rather than Melbourne to be inclusive of our members not based in the capital city. All IAF members in Victoria are a part of the Chapter and we currently have just over 30 members.

The purpose of the Chapter is to pursue the goals of the IAF at a local level by:

  • giving credibility to and furthering the work of the field of professional group facilitation
  • providing a network to foster interchange between professional practitioners in the field
  • developing appropriate opportunities, methodologies, models, tools and modes that support the practice of exemplary participatory facilitation.

For more information contact Geoff Hurst, Chair IAF Victoria Chapter via email or mobile 0426 881 322.

Follow IAF Victoria on Twitter @IAFVic and #iafvicpd, or on Facebook and LinkedIn.
